This tasteful Federation home in the Brisbane river suburb of Hawthorne has been beautifully renovated to suit the contemporary needs and style of the modern family while perfectly retaining its 19th century character.

This historic Queenslander is set on an 810m2 double block with an outdoor pavilion that exudes elegance and a solar heated in-ground swimming pool, this property is perfect for entertaining guests and family alike.

The lower lounge is spacious and a perfect entertainment option for a chilly Bulimba night and the backyard offers a lush green lawn that is suited for children.  Two spacious bedrooms, a stone-topped kitchen with gas stove, a family bathroom and laundry facilities complete the property’s lower level.

Upstairs, a perfectly appointed master bedroom is complete with a deluxe en-suite and walk-in robe.  While the other two upstairs bedrooms offer veranda access for guests and family who want to enjoy a warm Brisbane sunrise.

It’s hard to ignore the property’s sustainable assets. The original pine floorboards remain in place beneath the mixed eucalypt upper level, which soundproof the home. And while the property is set in its 19th century grace, two separate HFC internet connections ensure the home is ready for the necessities of the future.

Updated in the sustainable vision of the modern era, and adorned in contemporary style, this Federation home loses none of its 19th century charm as it perfectly blends the old and new.
